History, Writing, and Me……

Posted by on April 8, 2008

Hi all,

Since I’ve moved my blog over to my own domain, things are still a little wacky….I appreciate your patience. Moving domains, technically, isn’t too bad, but it’s all the other stuff that goes along with it!

I wanted to post out to everyone, new and old, with an introduction to this blog as well as why I blog. I’ll follow up with some cool links at the bottom also, so don’t leave yet, ok?

Tomorrow will be back to normal. Promise.


Who I am:

Professionally, I’ve been a librarian for a while now. It’s got to be one of the most fascinating jobs ever. No, we don’t just set at a desk and read books all day. Reading is part of it, but a reference librarian never has the same day twice…especially if you work a public service desk. We literally get ALL types of questions. That’s what makes it fun!

I’m also a parent and father….and it is one of the hardest jobs I have ever loved. In today’s busy world, I want to be there both for my wife and my kids…it’s hard to do that sometimes. Is it that way for you also?

What I’m thinking about doing:

Recently, I’ve tried to move a bit into the freelance article world, thinking perhaps to combine my love of history with writing. I’m no Hemingway, but I enjoy writing and still have a lot to learn.

I also have some pictures on Flickr that you might be interested in. I try to focus on some of the same topics you see here: history, military history, etc. Maybe that’s not interesting or maybe it is, but I guess I’ll leave that up to you to decide. Here’s the link just in case: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tonybandy/

About You:

Enough about me, let’s talk about you. I’m not sure if you are just stopping by or you are a daily reader, but it is my goal that each time you stop, you can read about some fun and interesting facts about history, or something along those lines. There is much history that has been overlooked, especially the information that one can find through federal resources as well as public domain.

How to Subscribe:

Lastly, in case you are not aware, you can get this blog and each day’s posts via the subscription link to the right. If you don’t have an RSS reader, that might be the best option.

Talk to you later,
